It’s Okay, I’m From the Internet: Meme as Art Exhibit
Deadline: Wednesday, October 5 | 4pm
What would Andy Warhol think of the “meme?”
An image made viral, re-curated thousands of times, offering insight into our collective experience. Each date stamped a certain shelf life of relevancy. Each has its own “fifteen minutes of fame.”
With this idea in mind, we are requesting submissions for a unique exhibit with the theme Meme as Art. We invite you to explore the phenomena of meme through a creative lens. Work may be inspired by, a derivative of, or in homage to the meme, or it could be a meme of its very own with the intention of representing creativity in some way. This exhibit will open in conjunction with the It’s Okay, I’m From the Internet Art + Film Festival on Saturday, October 15, from 6:30 - 9:30pm, and will be on display in the Bruce H. Lien Cultural Café & Gallery, 10.24.16 - 11.18.16.
